In the still of the night, he deftly crept across the lawn to the window and stood as still as he could and listened quietly to the meeting going on in the room.

Eventually, she realized she didn’t hear the puppy the anymore, and she got up to check on him, hoping he’d just worn himself out and not gotten into trouble.
